The Aurora Police Department’s Use of Force policy provides guidelines on the reasonable use of force used by our officers while they are protecting the City of Aurora.
Our Use of Force policy is based off federal and state case law and best practices of law enforcement agencies across the nation. Each day, officers are involved in numerous and varied interactions with the community. We train each one of our police officers to have an understanding of, and true appreciation for, their authority and limitations. This is especially true with respect to overcoming resistance while engaged in the performance of law enforcement duties.
APD recognizes and respects the value of all human life and dignity without prejudice.
